ERMANNO SCERVINO RESORT 2021 COLLECTION FILM
Ermanno Scervino’s Cruise lookbook was shot in his Florentine villa’s botanical garden.
August 5, 2020
Where he collects ancient fruit trees, the garden in which the Ermanno Scervino Resort 2021 collection was shot is a biodiverse paradise with a bounty of rare, in some cases extinct, plants.
The collection paralleled the setting with intricate embroideries, elaborate lace intarsias, and hand-crafted appliqués which are an integral part of the hyper-feminine style Scervino favors.
There is a penchant for seductive embellishments, and resort offers plenty of his signature romantic pieces, made in airy white cotton muslin trimmed with delicate Chantilly lace. Snow-white whimsical dresses are flounced, plisséd, and frilled; masculine pant suits are cut from alabaster-white broderie anglaise; and soft tailored blazers in ivory macramé lace are worn over matching short shorts.
Animal print contrasts with the virginal palette, adding a jolt of sexy glamour. “It’s a mood-booster collection, intended for many different types of women,” said the designer. “Just like in a garden, variety is what makes it beautiful.”
